Tommy was the example for the saying ” A Cops Cop ” Always willing to respond and jump in where needed. I worked with him on the same squad for many years and we had a thing where we would try to beat each other to certain calls. Rest in peace my brother in blue and prayers for his family and friends.
I worked with Tommy on the same squad for a couple years.
